once I connect my device to the app and cloud before running the program it is going into safe mode how to remove the device from the safe mode?

This sounds like a Safe Mode Healer attempt to update the device OS to fit the version your firmware is targeting.
So let it sit there without interference for about 5 minutes and see whether the update can still finish (since you seem to have interrupted the process this might not work anymore tho’).


#3

Is there any other way to rectify this?

You could try DFU update via USB.

  • put the device in DFU Mode
  • run particle flash --usb tinker -v
  • run particle update -v
  • check whether the update has been successful via particle serial inspect (in Listening Mode)
  • flash your own firmware again (targeted at the same version now installed on the device)

Thank you will try and get back to you
